The RSC puts a modern spin on Shakespeare's Hamlet in this filmed-for-television version of their stage production. The Prince of Denmark seeks vengeance after his father is murdered and his mother marries the murderer.
This was a good ITV Sitcom which only lasted one series in 1998.
Starring Richard Wilson as PC Roland 'Prof' Rose, An Elderly constable who has been there, done that and bought the T-Shirt.
The series was set around a River Police station and the gentle, mundane goings on. It was a gentle, old fashioned type of comedy in the same vein as the BBC's long running sitcom 'Last Of The Summer Wine' However, ITV obviously thought that it could capitalise on the fact that 'One Foot In The Grave' was on a 5 year break and by putting Richard Wilson in a Police uniform and having him act almost exactly like Victor Meldrew would bring in viewers who were craving more 'One Foot...' Sadly, it didn't work. It seemed to make the public just want 'One Foot In The Grave' to come back and thus, the series was cancelled.
It is notable for having future Doctor Who star David Tennant as Prof's sidekick the geeky PC Simon 'Darwin' Brown and Samantha Beckinsale as WPC Gillian 'Marilyn' Monroe.
This could have gone on to be one of ITV's great sitcoms if it wasn't for Victor Meldrew! ;-)
